IUB Delays Ruling of Early Pipeline Construction
DES MOINES, Iowa -- The Iowa Utilities Board held a meeting Wednesday to discuss Dakota Access' request to move forward with construction along some parts of the Bakken oil pipeline route. The pipeline would run 346 miles through 18 Iowa counties. Last month, Dakota Access asked the Iowa Utilities Board to grant it access to go ahead and start building the pipeline in approved areas, but once again, the board decided to hold off on an officially ruling.
